Sharing between two vista machines, major bug...

I have noticed in Vista that sharing a subfolder in
the 'Users' folder results in the entire Users folder being shared. The only way to get around this is to select Advanced Sharing in the chosen file or folders properties.

Is there a proper fix? Or does it only happen on my machines? Both systems are up to date.

OK, done some searching around-not quite a bug as such, but it should definately be alot clearer in eactly whats being shared when not always having to select that 'advanced' option to share specific files or folders >:O :)
